Pothead sneaks into abandoned house, finds full grown tiger

While Texas law permits those with wild game permits to own exotic animals like tigers, it is illegal to keep a tiger in a residential area of the city of Houston.

Officials said the house was empty - except for several packages of meat found near the tiger.

But once they arrived, police found a caged tiger in the home's garage, according to KTRK.

Animal welfare officers found the tiger on Monday and called the Houston police in order to secure a warrant and remove the tiger.

The couple discovered a tiger that had been left in a shoddily secured cage inside of a disused house in Southeast Houston and reported it to the police.

The building, in the 9400 block of East Avenue J., was being used to house a large female tiger in a "rinky-dink" cage in the garage, KPRC-TV reported, citing police.

"They are basically a loaded gun pointed at anyone that encounters them", she said.

Lara Cottingham with BARC told the Houston Chronicle that the caller was reportedly concerned the tiger was being held in a cage that was too small.

Animal Enforcement Officers with Houston's BARC Animal Shelter responded to move the tiger to its headquarters temporarily.

'The Houston Zoo is home to two Malayan tigers, Berani and Satu, and does not have capacity to receive additional tigers'.

Houston Zoo said in a statement that it would not be able to take the tiger.

Some tigers are smuggled into the United States from Mexico, and there are small pockets of breeding facilities across the country.
